What is the outcome of neutron decay ? 

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Proton and Neutron are present in nuclei. The neutrons present inside the nuclei are stable. The half lifetime of free neutrons decay is 15 minutes.

Step 2

Free neutrons cause radiation problems around nuclear reactors since the free neutrons can leak out of the reactor and decay.

Step 3

The free neutrons decay to give an elect...
